State competition Perform Your Homeland

On behalf of the State Chancellery of the Saarland, the State Academy for Music and Cultural Education again organized this year's state competition Perform your homeland. The competition is aimed at children and young people who explore a cultural site in their district through music and dance. The resulting performances are captured in extraordinary films that also highlight Saarland's cultural sites.

In cooperation with the Regional Association of Saarbrücken and the Robert Schumann Gymnasium in Saarlouis, a film was made at the Cultural site Wintringer Chapel with the title: "Along the Milky Way" in Gothic and Contemporary. This contribution has received the first prize!

A very convincing concept, well thought out.

Relating music, dance and Cultural site is very well done.

The video takes you along, draws you into the performance.

Vote of the jury

Exhibition Bliesgau - Messages of a Landscape

Works by artists Rudolf Schwarz and Bernd Janes promote the poetry and preservation of an old cultural landscape in the Historic City Hall Kleinblittersdorf

Stilisierte Grenzlinie des Bliesgaus

The historic city hall of Kleinblittersdorf has been the venue for art exhibitions for a long time and is therefore part of the network of places of art and culture in the Regional Association of Saarbrücken. On the initiative of the Regional Association of Saarbrücken and the municipality of Kleinblittersdorf, it is hoped that in the future the themes of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Bliesgau will also be addressed locally through the language of art. The artist Vera Loos will curate the art exhibitions.

For the opening, the artists Rudolf Schwarz and Bernd Janes could be won to show works that are readable as subtle messages of the specific cultural landscape of the Bliesgau.

Bildcollage Tafel Bliesgauhocker Mobile

Architect, building ecologist and artist Bernd Janes highlights the unmistakable earth color of this landscape with 7 panels and 7 rammed earth bodies, which he created from the loamy shell limestone soil of the Bliesgau biosphere. It is based on subtle differences of the loamy shell limestone. Lyrical texts written by the Saarland poet Johannes Kühn especially for these works of art open up dialogues that allow deeper sensual access to the very own identity of the Bliesgau landscape.

KunstSchäfer Rudolf Schwarz invites with his conceptual artistic work "BLIESGAUHOCKER" to take a seat to trace the deeper mission of his work. Through the symbol or methodology of "Mobile - UNESCO-Biosphere Reserve Bliesgau", the artist has connected his work to important viewpoints on the sustainable preservation of this landscape. The viewers can participate in this and further develop their own point of view.

For the exhibition opening, on March 1, 2023, at 18:00, Mayor of Kleinblittersdorf Rainer Lang, Regional Association Director Peter Gillo and the Association Chairman of the Biosphärenzweckverband Bliesgau, District Administrator Dr. Theophil Gallo, welcomed the visitors!

Schülergruppe vor Gemälde in der Wintringer Kapelle

In March, the European Academy Otzenhausen hosted a Franco-German group of students at the Wintringer Chapel Cultural site to Starry learn about organic farming and cultural work, art projects and the European model project Path/Chemin des étoiles.

During an exciting exchange, the focus was on the responsibility of each individual for the future of the earth, which can be inspired by artistic vision and being on the road in Europe. The topic of peace took a special place here.
